Subject: THIS WAS A GREAT SHOW
I enjoy this first set quite a bit, save Jer's So Many Roads - this is really Bobby's set - El Paso, with that acoustic and Vince's 'cantina' intro and outtro, is absolutely wonderful; that middle section of MNS is as psychedelic as ever...
First part of the 2nd set works - Victim descends into that typical atonal madness, the Eyes is long, and Jer gives it his all on Terrapin - post-Space the band is somewhat out of sync, and Jerry mumbles his way through Morning Dew - it's been done a lot better.
Overall, some good moments, but those calling this the best of the 90s should, respectfully, explore the decade a bit more.
Subject: Definitely NOT the best of 90's, but a good set list!
I was at all of these and yes indeed, "So Many Roads" was sweet; along with "Terrapin", and the improvisation, (I refuse to call it "Space" since their is no air in space, hence no sound, "The final frontier" perhaps), amongst others. However, the happy Head that said it was the best of the '90's must not have seen many shows in the '90's. Because for example, "Eyes of the World" was one of the boringest I've ever heard! On the other hand, parts were a good set list, like "Easy Answers", and some rarities like "The Shoe Fits" etc.!
Sorry to be so negative, and in fact folks have accused me of being overly critical! Yet I recall, (although it was in the '80's after I'd been accused as such; when I came out of a raging show which shall remain nameless, and saw a person who thought of me this way; I immediately said how much I appreciated the performance)!
But unfortunately, since I have far fewer recordings of the shows I saw in the '90's than I do from earlier, even though I can think of ones I was impressed by; it would be unfair to cite a specific date as better, (with the possibly exception of 1994-12-16, entirely with Branford Marsalis, speaking of "Eyes of the World"); before having reviewed the recording. So obviously then I could be certain of it's strengths and naturally, some occasional weaknesses, if any! In any case, thanks to this amazing archive that is gradually coming to an end, since it appears to contain virtually all shows from the '90's!
Subject: Why are people being so hard on this show?
Other than the fall MSG and BG run what sounds better than this from 94'?
Of Course not as quality as fall of 89' or summer of 90', but comparatively to other post 91' Dead this show fares up their with the Cal Expo and Autzen 93' runs as some of the more quality later Dead.
If people are going to be critical of performance consistency and fluidity there are plenty of other shows to criticize before this one.
Here we have a 3 hour show in 1994 (a generally weak performance year IMHO) with a nasty 23 minute Terrapin, a solid first yet (yeah Jer flubs some lyrics in So Many Roads... so what? Watchtowers a bore, when isn't it?) Most importantly the band is somewhat focused rather than the "going thru the motions" spirit that unfortunately seemed to dominate the later years of the Dead.
Other highlights include an epic Eyes of the World, and a Morning Dew that might surprise you in its climax jam which is super on point. Unfortunately it cuts out about 20 seconds short of the end. We do get the entirety of the Climax jam, but still feel shorted...
As somebody who would rather listen to early Pre Vince-era stuff this is a show that was actually a pleasure to listen to.
Solid 4 stars for a generally 2 star performance year.

Subject: Got the video
Subject: Highly Disappointing
Subject: Is Help On The Way?
Subject: ...and another thing.
Subject: Vids available
Subject: First Show(s)
Subject: Has the 'X' factor
The post-Terrapin jam is simply one of the most interesting pieces of improvisation to come out of the Vince years. Powerful Dew, though not quite perfect. In fact the entire second set is just beautiful. After the show, Phil was quoted somewhere as saying he wished they could have kept playing! Check it out.
Subject: awesome show
Bob Weir rocks New Minglewood Blues, with Jerry playing playing some fantastic guitar.
Peggy O was phenominal.
And Jerry singing (and sometimes forgetting the words) to So Many Roads was unbelievable. Truly touching.
Subject: Quintessential Late-Season Jerry
Subject: Let's get serious
The first set has it's moments too.
Lastly I had to scroll down quite far to learn about the cut Dew. Bummer! Really think there should be better notation by some uploaders (if we ever get to do that again). Thank God I can't download this show. I might have and then found out about the Dew the hard way.
Subject: better but not saying much
Subject: Some great stuff in here
Subject: Smokin' show
Subject: Choppy performance
The show overall is choppy at best. Eyes is good, but ends up kinda lost. The Dew has some painful Garcia lyric issues. The jam after Terrapin is mighty fine and interesting. Drums is 20 minutes, Space another 11. Too much.

Subject: great, great show ---best of 94?
Subject: Broke my heart!
Subject: What a great consert huh....?
The Videos have even better sound quality then the site recordings. Which are great due some vidoes are like...even worse then just the sound? Well anyway, this consert is great, and the recordings are aswell. If anyone of you guys have the whole video recordings for this consert please contact me =) PS: I've watched this vidoes from this consert i have like 200 times each, they are always as good DS.
Subject: prefect show
maybe the best peggy-o EVER, and excellent so many roads
download this show NOW :)
Subject: Different vibe than previous nights.
Subject: Deal teaser in Vegas
Ouch, that cut on AM Dew Hurts.
Subject: Vegas 94
Subject: Definitely one of the best post Brent shows
This show has Jerry on top of his game and at the time I was totally caught up in Jerry's game, so I had to download this show to see if it lived up to the memory. I had seen the whole run of '94 Sam Boyd and this was the best of the run.
This recording sounds better than my memory of the show. In fact, this recording sounds better than some Dicks Picks I've paid for.
I thought I heard a young man cry about the cut at the end. It is a total shame that the AM Dew at the end is cut, as it was the best dam Dew I ever heard from the Fat Man in my 50+ shows from '88 to '95. You get what you pay for I suppose, but I need the miraculous upload of the show ender!
Listening to this show, I wonder in as much amazement as I did in the moments 10+ years previous. Thanks archive.org, Mr Aizen, et al. Thank you, thank you!
